Capitol Exhibition: Georgia Survivors and Liberators

In support of its mission to educate Georgia citizens about the impact of the Holocaust and honor the courage of Georgians who survived or participated in the military acts of freedom in WWII, in January 2020, the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust installed an eight-panel permanent exhibit at the Georgia State Capitol building near the lower-level entrance.  Capitol visitors can learn the diverse personal stories of resiliency of three Holocaust survivors, two heroic liberators, and one story of a man who was both a survivor and later, a liberator.  The exhibit is free to the public and included in the Capitol Tours program. 

The Georgia State Capitol is located at 206 Washington Street SW, Atlanta, GA  30334.
